Gunmen rob Union City KFC


NAUGATUCK — Just as last week’s Union City Revitalization Committee public forum was coming to a close, the KFC on Bridge Street, barely a half-mile from the school where the forum was held, was robbed by gunmen.

According to a police department press release, three males in ski masks and dark clothing jumped the counter, emptied the registers, and sped off in a vehicle that’s been described as either an older, red Chevrolet Caprice or Ford Crown Victoria. The number of guns involved is unclear, as the police report says only “multiple handguns were involved in this incident.” No shots were fired.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Naugatuck Police Department Detective Bureau at 729-7106 or the main desk at 729-5222.
